MØ (born August 13th, 1988) is a Danish singer/songwriter. Born Karen Marie Ørsted in Odense, Denmark, MØ was just seven when the Spice Girls inspired her to make music. In her teenage years, she sang in the punk duo MOR and looked up to Kim Gordon as a "big hero and role model". Then in her early twenties, she "fell in love" with hip-hop. All of these influences led to her dreamy electro-pop vibe (comparable to Grimes, Twin Shadow, and Lykke Li) as MØ, which means "maiden" or "virgin" in Danish.
